# What is zero coupon and how is it calculated to maturity?

A zero coupon bond is a bond which pays no interim cashflow (i.e. coupons). We usually price on the basis of percentage of Face Value (i.e. $100). So if you expected 5% return…, semi annually, over the 3 years remaining on the life of a ZC Bond, the price would be; 100/(1+Yield/frequency)^(TermXfrequency) 100/(1+5%/2)^(3X2) = $86.23 So you'd pay $86.23 now and get $100 back in 3 years. If so, then your return would be 5% s.a.

# Why is the coupon rate a bad estimate of a firm's cost of debt?

A coupon rate is not a good estimate of a firm's cost of debt, as it is only a reflection of the firm's cost of debt when bonds were issued, not the current cost of debt. …It's not representative of the yield in the current market.

# Difference between coupon rate and yield to maturity?

The coupon rate is the actually stated interest rate. This is the rate earned on a NEW issue bond. The yield to maturity takes into consideration the purchase price of a bond …bought in the secondary market. For example, if you buy a $1,000 bond for $1100 which matures in 10 years and has a coupon of 5%, your coupon is 5%, but your yield to maturity would be closer to 4% because you paid $1100, but will only get back $1,000 at maturity (losing $100). The "loss" reduces the return.

# What is relationship between a bond coupon rate and its duration?

bond coupon rates and yield rates have very similar effects and a very similar relationship to duration, lemme explain, by first explain durations effects in relation to… interest rates, then yields and finally you can surmise that relationship between yield rates will be the same as coupon rates Duration can be seen as the elasticity of the bond's price with respect to interest rates. When duration is 7, a 15 year bond will fall 7% in value if interest rates increase by 1%. In the data we've generated we can also determine the relationship between yields and duration by analyzing the change after a 50 basis point decrease in rates. The duration will rise as yields are lowered, and conversely a high coupon rate or high yield will result in lower durations. While a higher yield reduces the present value of all the bond's payments, it reduces the value of payments further in the future by a greater proportional amount. This amounts to a reduction in duration. Merck & Company's bond has the highest yield and therefore one would surmise that the duration for MRK should be lower than the other bonds, this is only true if all other variables are held equal (ceteris paribus). This is not the case. The bonds have wildly different coupons remaining. Eli Lilly's bond has a similar number of coupons remaining-suggesting a relatively good candidate for comparison-and a lower yield than MRK, leading one to expect LLY bond to have a higher duration than MRK. An astute financial student would discourage this comparison, citing that LLY exhibits the highest (7.125%) annual coupon rate, which would in turn reduce the duration. While comparisons between bonds will fail us due to their unique characteristics, it is easy to see the change when examining a single bond and the effect of a 50 basis point decrease in rates has on the bond's duration. Every single bond's duration rose, relative to itself before the basis change, as their yields were lowered. This helps prove our assumption of the inverse relationship between yield and duration.

# What is the difference between yield and coupon rate?

yield is the return on investment, for example dividend paid. coupon is the rate of interest related to bonds or debentures.

For DC Load: VxI, here the power factor is consisdered to be 1, since it is a DC current !! Byeee!

# What is the relationship between coupon rate and bond price?

The Bond price is the amount of the bond when it becomes mature. The coupon rate is the amount of interest payable on the bond. Bonds have three major components The first… is the face value (also called par value). This is the value of the bond as given on the certificate or instrument. This is the value the bond holder will receive at maturity unless the issuer defaults. If bonds are retired before maturity, bond holders may receive a slight premium over face value. Investors pay par when they buy the bond at its original face value. The price investors pay may be more or less than the face value. Bonds also have a coupon rate. This is the annual rate of interest payable on the bond. For the owner of a bond, the higher the coupon rate, the higher the interest payments the owner receives. The rate is set at the time the bond is issued and generally does not change. Most bonds make interest payments semiannually, although some bonds are offered with monthly and quarterly payments. Did you know? Until 1983, all bond owners received an actual paper bond certificate. This inspired bond terminology. The loan amount appeared prominently on the face of the bond. Bonds included coupons that the owner detached, one Price and interest rate on a bond are inversely related, if the bond price is low, rate will be high, if the bond price is high, interest rate will be lower.
